MFTeasers - Day Two!


Hello there! I'm back with more MFTeasers! Today we're previewing three more sets -- and I have previews of two of them!

My first project features Emma and Her Backpack. It's SO cute and just perfect for back-to-school or any adventure! I made a card and a backpack tag for my daughter Caroline, who starts First Grade in just a few weeks!


You'll see I used three Die-namics dies on the card: Framed Greetings, Jumbo Scallops, and the NEW Small Scallop Border. The card base is a Fossil Scalloped Notecard. I embellished with Cotton Twill and a Summer Collection Button.


I made a coordinating tag for Caroline's backpack. Her initials were stamped using the Banner Day Alphabet. I again used the new Die-namics Small Scallop Border -- it adds such a sweet extra layer!


I used Fred Bear Goes Camping for my second project today. I made a little "S'mores Box" using Jody's Holiday Basket Template. I again used Banner Day Alphabet to stamp the word "s'mores." The panel behind Fred has been torn and sponged to look like it's been burned -- I think Fred needs to be more careful! ;)


I packaged S'mores Mix in a small cello bag and placed it inside the box. I just mixed together some Teddy Grahams, mini marshmallows, and milk chocolate chips. There's no beating a real campfire s'more, but the mix is a yummy, no-flame alternative! :)


Ready for some TOP-SECRET news? Today, there is a prize hidden on one of the designer's blog posts. As you make your way through the Teaser Time posts, simply leave a comment on each blog, for your chance to win one of the Brand Spankin' New stamp sets being released on August 4th.

I hope you enjoyed Day Two! I'll be back with Day Three tomorrow! :)

Have a great day -- thanks so much for stopping by! :)
